Digital Detailing in Pharma

Provider-Pharma Engagement Goes Virtual

About This Report
The pandemic upended the conventional process by which pharmaceutical sales reps pitch their drugs to healthcare professionals. Physicians now demand hybrid in-person and virtual meetings. Pharma marketers must assess ways to refine various digital detailing (aka e-detailing) strategies.
Table of Contents

Executive Summary

Pharmaceutical companies have long had to fight for physicians’ time in order to pitch them on their newest drugs, a sales practice commonly known as detailing. The rise of e-detailing, which facilitates digital connections between pharma sales reps and providers, presents an additional engagement channel. Pharma marketers will need to better understand how physicians want to interact with reps and use that knowledge to develop omnichannel detailing strategies.

Key Question: How can pharmaceutical companies tailor their e-detailing strategies to enhance interactions with providers?

KEY STAT: Eight in 10 providers want virtual engagement with pharmaceutical sales reps to continue, even after the pandemic ends.
